Confirmed: Hunger Games-inspired nail polish from China Glaze!
So, Lionsgate has FINALLY announced and confirmed the official nail polish colours and names for The Hunger Games, “Colours of the Capitol”. They’re working with China Glaze to release a series of Hunger Games-inspired nail polish, and the colour samples are definitely looking good!
If you take a closer look at the names of the polishes, you’ll notice that each of the 12 polish colours seem to represent each district according to Shylah from Down With The Capitol.
Dress Me Up: District 8 (textiles)
Foie Gras(that’s French for duck/goose liver): Possibly District 10 (livestock)
Fast Track: District 6 (transport)
Hook and Line: District 4 (fishing)
Stone Cold: District 2 (masonry)
Smoke and Ashes: District 12 (coal mining)
Agro: District 11 (agriculture)
Mahogany Magic: District 7 (lumber)
Harvest Moon: District 9 (grain)
Riveting: District 3 (electronics)
Electrify: District 5 (power)
Luxe and Lush: District 1 (luxury products)
However, there are STILL rumours that this wonderous line of polishes may not be released! (Devastating, I know.) Hollywood Reporter states that
Los Angeles-based American International Industries, which says it is the country’s largest privately-held manufacturer of personal care and beauty products, filed a lawsuit Wednesday in LA Superior Court. The company claims that it closed a deal in late October to create a Hunger Games-branded version of its “China Glaze” nail polish, as well as contribute to the promotional campaign for the adaptation of the popular Suzanne Collins novel that Lionsgate is hoping will be a mega-blockbuster movie series similar to Twilight.
But shortly after Lionsgate executives signed the contract, according to the complaint, the studio made statements to the press that the deal was “not happening,” and asked American to say that the parties “were merely ‘discussing’ a ‘possible’ promotional deal.” American says it refused to lie, prompting a Lionsgate attorney to send an email on Nov. 17 saying that the studio was “terminating” the contract.
(BTW, I know some of you felt horrid at the comparison to Twilight. I know EVERYTHING. *narrows eyes*)
HOWEVER, DO NOT FRET! Lionsgate has announced in a recent press release that the nail polishes WILL be released on March 1, 2012!
SANTA MONICA, CA (December 9, 2011) – Lionsgate announces that it has partnered with worldwide beauty brand China Glaze on a collection of nail polish to debut in conjunction with the March 23, 2012 release of THE HUNGER GAMES.
In keeping with the powerful themes and messages of the story, the collection of nail polish will be inspired exclusively by one of the book’s distinct settings- the Capitol of the nation of Panem. Awash in lavish fashion, food, and entertainment, Capitol citizens enjoy extreme cosmetics and body modifications, bold wigs, and outlandish costumes.
The collection of colors will be available at specialty beauty retailers beginning on March 1, 2012.
As mentioned in a previous article, you can find China Glaze in these Sephora outlets in Singapore at these places :):
- Takashimaya S.C. B1
- ION Orchard L1
- Great World City L1
- Marina Bay Sands B2
Do tell us which colour is your favourite! I’d really like to know! 🙂
